Why Security?

However, it has been got significant attention in the last few years where the issues such as privacy, corporate accountability has been in limelight, especially with the introduction of several regulations and laws such as Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Sarbanes-Oxley Act, HIPAA, Safe Harbor and numerous other laws.

Why this Seminar

Fortunately Oracle database presents several built-in tools and mechanisms to build a robust secured system. With each new release of the database, the options to implement security for Oracle users keep growing. However, the introduction of these new features and their applicability and usage may not have been clearly communicated or understood by organizations. The IT personnel may be too busy in the day to day activity to take time to understand these new tools and technology and apply them.

This seminar provides the bridge to cover the gap in understanding these new technologies and provides a fresh perspective on their usage from a best-practices point of view. In one single day, the participants will learn the entire gamut of security solutions available in Oracle along with working examples.

This is not a mere informational seminar, nor it is an Oracle marketing session; it's a compendium of the Oracle database tools and techniques distilled from the presenter's long experience of being an Oracle DBA. The attendees will learn these tips and techniques first hand, through live demonstrations and exercises. The goal is to make the attendees experts on using the tools.
